    Cabelas Bargain Cave is going away

    If you’re been to Denver you might understand why there are two stores. Traffic is horrific on I-25 through Denver. Going around Denver on the east side is a toll road and is a long slog going around the west side. Also the north store serves metro areas from the north, ie. Fort Collins and...

    REPORT: Trophaendienste Taxidermy Namibia - Beware

    @jrgould. I researched Reiser b4 my Namibia hunt in the Kalahari last June. Initially good response with pricing lists but no follow up after that to my detailed questions. They were recommended by my outfitter. After the hunt and after finding a taxidermist recommended by Peter at Pronto...

    Shipment of Hunting Trophies by Sea

    I am working with a freight company in Windhoek to forward my trophies and he confirms what the OP says. They have a "possible solution" and hope to know more later this week.

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    I received an estimate from Namibia Safari Services in Windhoek for the 11 plains game I hope to kill and transport hides and horns to RSA for taxidermy. Please note additional charges for permits and taxes within RSA, if any, plus additional transport to final destination are not included...

    Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism Permit Applications

    Am I to assume the permit application is completed and submitted by the PH or outfitter with a copy of the passport emailed to said PH or outfitter prior to the hunt. Also enlighten me on what permits are required for a plains game hunt with Cities Hartmann's zebra.

    Wolves and moose in Jackson Hole Wyoming

    Don't know about Isle Royal situation but know sheep and cattle ranchers in north eastern WA and south western MT that would disagree with the wonton killer comment.

    Recommendation for Shooting Sticks/Tripod

    Like Shootist43 says. I made a set of these, http://www.ropeworks.biz/reader/tripod.pdf, from bamboo poles found at the local garden center and some thin #18 three strand nylon cord. Wrapped a thin piece of inner tube in and around the "v" notch to cushion the rifle forend. Works as intended.

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    I'd like to check out Nyati Wildlife Art and Reiser near Windhoek. Nyati has a webpage but haven't responded to my inquiries and Reiser is just the opposite. Not sure who my PH is recommending, but it's early. Time to sort it out.

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    Bill, I'm on the same wave length. Taxidermist in SA I know and like his work, nothing fancy but quality at a good price. The local guy that did my caribou and moose from BC, does fine work. His prices are almost double what I pay in SA. I plan on visiting a couple taxidermists upon arrival...

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    Bill, Keep us posted when you hear more. My load will be 8-9 animals, but about half will be small, steenbok, duiker, klipspringer and like that. I'm a bit more optimistic now. Your plan is shipping from Namibia? July is my timeframe. Preliminary cost savings for taxidermy in SA is...

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    Thanks for the contact. I finished reading your Bots hunt report a couple weeks ago which prompted my query. Great report by the way.

    Transporting Namibian trophies to South Africa for Taxidermy

    Royal, That's what I was wondering. If dip and pack, permits, etc., etc., were required. It's not sounding like a feasible project.
